ShoreMax is a special purpose inflatable oil spill containment boom for use in shallow, calm water environments or to traverse between the beach and the sea. It is ideal for making the transition between a conventional floating boom and the shoreline, equally it is very useful in swamp and marsh areas where the water level can rise and fall. Ballast is provided by water-filled tubes. American Marine, a division of Elastec, has been manufacturing quality floating boom and barrier products since 1967. For storage, we offer a line of boom reels. Fill out our questionnaire and tell us about your project.

Elastec manufactures ShoreMax from welded heavy-duty Urethane. It lays flat when stowed, optimizing storage space. ShoreMax features a water ballasted skirt comprising of two water tubes with a single top tube that provides buoyancy when the boom is floating. This tube is inflated, or as an option, can be fitted with foam flotation. When deployed in shallow water or dry land, the twin water tubes will form a seal, preventing the spread of oil. The twin water tubes ensure stability.

ShoreMax is a lightweight and durable inflatable oil spill containment boom with good resistance to the elements. As standard, the ShoreMax is supplied in manageable 50 ft / 15 m section lengths. The boom is supplied with ASTM compliant end connectors for rapid coupling of sections. These end connectors are fitted with Zinc anodes.

ShoreMax containment boom has individually filled air chambers, each chamber being equipped with the patented Monsun valve. This valve has a built-in non-return. Water tubes are fitted with a filling / emptying port with a plug. Water pump and air blower required for operation.

Containment boom reels

Containment Boom Reels

Oil containment boom reels are the fastest and most efficient means for storage, deployment and recovery of longer lengths of boom. Most of our reels have the ability to free-wheel to speed up deployment. Our boom reels may be hydraulic or manually operated and are suitable for both inflatable boom and some models of foam flotation boom.
